Works for Me~Sunless Sun Tea

Wednesday, July 15th, 2009

I used to set the gallon jar out on the steps to make sun tea. My mom told me you can do the same thing but just stick it in the fridge. No sun–no hot tea to cool off when you’re thirsty for a big tall glass! I take the gallon pitcher and 8 tea […]

Lee’s new Roommate

Tuesday, July 14th, 2009

He’s not a “cellie” anymore, so I guess he’s a roommate. He needs your prayers. Lee said he’s a bit mixed up. He says that he is a dracula and a witch. He also has some other beliefs that are out there. He told Lee that he took Lee’s energy but gave it back because […]

How to Win Over Worry

Monday, July 13th, 2009

As I was paging through my Bible the other day, I found these notes. I hope they will be a help for you too! To get rid of worry 1. Rejoice Philippians 4:4 Rejoice in the Lord alway: and again I say, Rejoice. 2. Relax Philippians 4:6 Be careful for nothing; but in every thing […]

Works of God~Monday

Sunday, July 12th, 2009

Has God blessed you this week in any big or “small” ways? Please share. Please leave a comment with your work of God or leave a link to any post from the last month–no I haven’t figured out Mr. Linky yet! Here’s mine. 1. James had a super time at camp. I survived letting him […]

From Outside the Frame

Friday, July 10th, 2009

Look at this cool idea for summer salads. I don’t know if the recipe sounds appealing to me, but I really like the jar idea. I like this idea for lazy summer lunches. Confessions of a CF Husband shares their reality. This oreo fudge ice cream cake looks really yummy. I made strawberry freezer jam […]

Prayer Partners

Thursday, July 9th, 2009

When I share our story, I don’t necessarily do it to gain prayer partners. In the very beginning, I shared because I knew other women must be living a similar life and I wanted to encourage them to trust in the Lord. As time went on, more and more people found us and heard about […]

Update to a prayer request

Wednesday, July 8th, 2009

I shared a couple weeks ago a prayer request from my chiropractor. I stopped in today for an adjustment and she told me that her mother is starting chemotheraphy today. The cancer is very agressive but it’s curable and they found only 2 small tumors. They expected to find it all through her body so […]

Wise Counsel

Wednesday, July 8th, 2009

When I try to share my thoughts on my marriage, my husband, and our situation, sometimes I think some of my readers assume I am a little naive. I know it could be easy to think that I’m hiding my head in the sand or that because I say I will respect my husband I […]

Works for Me Wednesday~Nausea

Tuesday, July 7th, 2009

Last week, I ate a handful of raw almonds and suddenly felt like I was going to be ill. I remembered that peppermint can help combat nausea so I went to the cabinet and grabbed my bottle of peppermint essential oil. I inhaled deeply and felt the nausea subsiding. I dabbed two little drops under […]

Respect

Tuesday, July 7th, 2009

A few weeks ago, I shared my thoughts about the way women treat their husbands in this post. Watching I received the following comment. This is interesting only because Lee made a choice AGAIN to break the law and keep himself away from his family. Was he respecting you and James with HIS actions? I […]
